John McCain's Plan For Osama Bin Laden

My gut tells me that Osama Bin Laden is dead. I mean, we're talking about a 6'4" guy with diabetes, chronic low blood pressure, kidney issues and a possible heart condition who has supposedly been hiding successfully in caves for years. Sorry, but I have a hard time believing that this sickly psycho is still creeping around crevices convincing others to die for his cause while he tries to score another pre-teen Muslim chick.


But what if he is still breathing infidel-polluted air? What if we caught him? What would we do?

I've always felt that if we nail this wacko we should drag him to the U S of A for some frontier justice delivered by New York's finest. So I was a bit surprised when I heard John McCain's response when Wolf Blizter asked what he would do as president if we caught Bin Laden.

"We have various options. The Nuremberg Trials are certainly an example of the kind of tribunal that we could move forward with. I don't think we'd have any difficulty in devising an international -- internationally supported mechanism that would mete out justice. There's no problem there."
What?!? Deliver the devil behind 9/11 to an international tribunal? Why on earth would Mac deprive America of our need to open a red white and blue can of whoop ass on this guy? Well, according to the Republican presidential nominee:
it would be a "good thing to reveal to the world the enormity of this guy's crimes, and his intentions, which are still there."
Well, now I suppose I should think about it. Vengeance is sweet, especially if I ever get the chance to lay some on Jimmy Ford for kissing my girlfriend Chrissy back in the 3rd grade, but does vengeance have lasting value? I tend to distrust the world's justice, but they didn't show much leniency when they took care of Saddam Hussein. Perhaps McCain is right and the globe needs to see this murderer for what he is rather than see him as merely a problem for America. He may be a symbol for Islamic terrorism, but an international trial could turn him into a symbol of the world's new-found courage in confronting this form of evil. Yes, perhaps McCain is right, but I'd sure like to see Bin Laden on the business end of an NYPD/FDNY beat down.

    I am not up on all the international law crap so I hope I find him first. Something tells me he may be hiding right under our noses and may be right here in slc utah...at any rate memo to anyone who sees him shoot him on sight, that should take care of any lawyer wrangling. :)N
